Java's JDK 8 was released today. Please ensure the plugin checker shows JDK 8 as a valid release. Java 7, currently 7u51, is still under active development and should not show users as being old/insecure.

added the new version to plugincheck production and also 7u51 should be marked as latest (so not old/insecure)

On Windows 7 I'm currently getting 1.8.0.0 as the latest version:

        },
We are seeing reports/threads where the pluginchecker is telling people that 7u51 is vulnerable. Can you please have a look?
